Napurrawuy doesn’t make that many instruments. And when he worked thisone he only used a saw and a machete. Result: a rustic instrument without chiselling, straight from the bush. To top that of, the instrument is painted with traditional ochre’s. The painting depicts a Dhalwaŋu story about fresh water in the river mouth. The instrument plays subtle and requires precision. But once you have control over this instrument it can handle everything. Great sound and easy toot!
This particular instrument was part of the ‘Power of Wood’ exhibition at the Aboriginal Art Museum Utrecht, in 2015.
